at all for the chuck hagel hearings, republicans talking they'll give him a tough time as a nom fee for defense secretary. >> what they really failed to do here, paul, not just have a response or press her on the big things and move her off the talking points on the questions that you just asked, but also that bigger question about putting and placing benghazi within the scope of a broader failure of foreign policy. and that's going to have to be what they're going to do if they're going to talk about chuck hagel. highlight the obama failure in this area and that chuck hagel is going to be a yes man for that strategy. if they're not able to do that in a hearing like this, they've been pressing for for months, it does not bowed wede for her-- >> and what about her state and benghazi now a negative concerns and arms control deal with russia, you were not enamored of, i recall. overall, what's her legacy? >> she's one of the most traveled secretary of state and diplomacy to her credit well. and sort of a famous figure who went to many countries. in terms of her influence on obama polic
's going to have to be what they are going to do if they are going to talk about chuck hagel is highlight the the obama's failures in this area and talk about chuck hagel is going to be yes man for that strategy. if they are not able to do that in a hearing like this which they have been pressing for four months it does not bode well. >> paul: what about her overall tenure at state? is there anything you can point to fall of qaddafi, that's now taken a negative term. there was an arm's control deal withe russia. you were not enamored of, as i recall. overall, what's her legacy? i mean, she is one of the most traveled secretaries of state. she did the public diplomacy part of her job to her credit well. she was sort of a very famous figure who went to many countries, in terms of her influence on obama policy or much less any sort of achievement it is impossible, at least to me to point to anything. what was even more remarkable about those hearings is that she sounded very hawkish on america musted lead in north africa. why must fight the spreading -- >> can'tus leave a vacuum fille. that'
chuck hagel is confirmed as his replacement. but i do want to make the point here, there are going to be growing pains. and we're hearing the same kinds of arguments oh, my god, you know, women are going to be integrated into the military academies. oh, my god, gays in the military. that's going to destroy unit cohesion. >> that's right. >> but those thinking soldiers, again, even the most hard-bitten combat veterans say this is inevitable. and i just want to point out what one combat trainer who is an army ranger, you know, one of the toughest jobs in the u.s. military, when i asked him, what about this argument that a 10-pound woman can't drag a 200-pound wounded comrade off the battlefield? and he looked at me and he said, how many times do you see a 130-pound man drag a 200-pound -- you know, and that's the sense of the argument. that women and men will work together just like the men work together. and the only thing different about this, while women have been drawn into combat, is this will be policy. this will be official. they will have ground combat roles. and what this wi
been talked about, that the president likes john kerry and his position and likes chuck hagel, if we're talking about iran, talking about algeria, talking about a fragile state in south africa, we have to be really careful how we engage, because it's easy to say, let's bomb iran, send troops. where are we going to get those troops and how can we afford to do that? not the least of which, how do we know that doesn't turn into a quagmire of another ten years, another 4,000 people dead. as much as they criticize the president for this leaving behind, what you'll hear from kerry, and this is the administration's position, we have to be tough, but we have to be thoughtful so we don't end up like we are right now in afghanistan with a mess on our hands. >> i think what karen says is interesting, because behind a lot of the republicans' critique of how the state department handled this is the idea there's a button hillary could have pressed that the black ops guys could have been there if only she had been on it. i think it's related to, like, the get tough on iran and this kind of, like, t
-- if as many predict that defense secretary spot will be occupied by chuck hagel, then why start him out with any kind of controversy just get it done. give him a clean start. >> bill: right. theory is, the joint chiefs in a letter to the secretary said "the time has come to rescind the direct combat exclusion rule for women and to eliminate all unnecessary gender-based barriers to service." that's what the generals are saying. your thoughts on combat, lifting the ban on women serving in combat. it's going to happen a little bit later today. 1-866-55-press. talking with lynn sweet washington bureau chief of the "chicago sun times." speaking of women in combat, secretary of state hillary clinton, i just want to play, dan, the one clip when this summed it up. she was attacked by rand paul and john mccain and by ron johnson of wisconsin which is very tough very patient. ron johnson finally got under her skin and she fired back. >> again, we were misledsh there were supposedly protests and something sprang out of that. an assault sprang out of that. that was easily ascertained that that was
as secretary. sources tell me the man nominated to replace him, chuck hagel, has been briefed on these changes but so far, hagel has not made any public statements one way or the other. chris lawrence, cnn, the pentagon. >>> the big story for most of us is just how cold it is and it's not going to get warmer until this weekend, so far three deaths have been reported in minnesota, wisconsin and illinois, and in north dakota, winds and snow created whiteout conditions. in washington, d.c., federal offices are open today but with an inch of snow expected, federal workers have the option of staying home to avoid the mess. >>> in upstate new york, it's the big dig-out with more snow on the way, a band of lake-effect snow stretching 150 miles, it's going to bring more and more snow to cities that have already seen up to two feet of the stuff and this bitter cold means, of course, broken pipes. >> very busy, no heat calls mostly today, we got a church in the center with no heat and we've got to do that and a couple of frozen water lines, that's it so far. >> that's it so far. in maryland a cell tower
, and chuck hagel seems to be okay with sequestrati sequestration, there's a lot of questions in the military and we need bold leaders who are going to set a straight course and focus on fighting and winning wars is what we're compelled to do. >> megyn: thank you for indulging me, as somebody who has never put on a uniform. didn't have the other side here today so i appreciate it. >> no problem. >> megyn: all the best. thanks for your service. up next, growing concerns that american ingenuity is being sold to one of the country's top competitors. and china could get their hands on designs for military application. so...how'd it go? well, dad, i spent my childhood living with monks learning the art of dealmaking. you've mastered monkey-style kung fu? no. priceline is different now. you don't even have to bid. master hahn taught you all that? oh, and he says to say (translated from cantonese) "you still owe him five bucks." your accent needs a little work. starts with arthritis pain and a choice. take tylenol or take aleve, the #1 recommended pain reliever by orthopedic doctors. just two aleve
in that regard. >> absolutely. i know chuck hagel. i think he is a strong, patriotic former senator and he will be a strong secretary of defense. i have dealt with him and and number of forays. he has been head of the atlantic council, some of the things and efforts to color senator hagel's approach on some of these things cannot do justice. i am going to come to it. i think it is important to think about it. when that initiative came out and we began to hear about the people who said let's get no nuclear-weapons, i scratch my head. i said how is that going to work? i find it hard to think how you can get down to a number in today's world. henry kissinger, jim baker, james schlesinger, many others have all agreed with that as a goal for the world. it is an aspiration. we should always be aspirational. but it is not something that can happen in today's world nor could any leader today sit here or in any other chair and promote the notion that we should be cutting down our deterrent levels before inadequate levels to maintain deterrence. the military has strong views about what that is. we h
